    a pattern for a zippered overnight bag. I've Googled for a free pattern with every possible name you could call it...overnight bag, travel bag, satchel, suitcase. I've come close with some of them, but couldn't nail it. Most of them were too small. I'd like it to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 18" wide, 17" high, and 4-6" deep. I had a pattern several years ago for one, but figured I'd never need it, so I donated it to the local thrift store. Wouldn't ya know...
    So I ordered a pattern online, but I don't think it's going to get here before I need it. For her birthday, I'm taking my mother for an overnight stay in Deadwood, SD...we're leaving on Good Friday, and I wanted to give it to her as a birthday present before we left. I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions you could offer. You can PM me if you like.
    Thanks a bunch! :-D

    I've used patterns and adjusted the size. Basically if you add to the center of the pattern piece you don't change the shape. Just use the patterns that are close for a jumping off point.

    This link is too funny. I went to it to check out the bag pattern, and couldn't belive all the drumming videos. I told my DH that drumming and quilting really do go hand in hand(he drums alot). It was strange to see both our passions on the same website...thankyou for the link.
